“By working with all of our key strategic partners across health and social care systems in the east, our aim is to ensure that our workforce is representative of the communities we serve and our organisations are compassionate and inclusive; actively seeking to remove institutionalised barriers that prevent our people from flourishing.
We want to ensure that our rich and diverse population is reflected in our workforce, celebrating the benefits that diversity brings to our patients and the communities we serve and that all staff feel a sense of place and belonging. We are working hard to create an inclusive and fair culture that permeates across all levels of the NHS. All of this work is driven by the goal of improving patient safety and experience.”
Harprit Hockley, Head of Equality and Inclusion (East of England)
